Partnership of a European Group of Aeronautics and Space UniversitieS

The Network


PEGASUS has been formed from an initiative taken by the four main French Grandes Ecoles involved in aerospace. The general objective of PEGASUS is to optimise the services we offer in the best interests of Europe both in terms of continuing to attract the best students and also to offer highly relevant educational and research programmes. Co-ordinated change and innovation will be required to achieve objectives to be defined through close links and interaction with our aerospace Industry and relevant Government agencies. The founding Partners of PEGASUS have collaborated for some years in an ad-hoc manner (largely supported by EU funding) but now wish to work more closely together in a manner that better satisfies the needs of our students and their employers across Europe. Today more than 2000 aeronautical engineers graduate from the member institutions of PEGASUS each year.  

To achieve the general goals of PEGASUS, it is essential that there exists, on an on-going basis, a close working relationship with the European Aerospace Industry and Government Agencies. At the simplest level one aim would be to accelerate the process by which employers within each nation of Europe understand and fully appreciate the nature of the undergraduate/graduate/diplome programmes of study offered outside their own country, and so assist in the Europeanisation of employment opportunities. A more important aim would be that of tailoring the student experience so as to maximise the advantages that can be associated with the multi-language, multi-culture nature of our industry (as opposed to the single-language culture of the competition). Even more importantly, PEGASUS members must ensure that together they offer a range of high quality and efficient programmes of support. These programmes must include;

  • Degree-awarding programmes
  • Continuing Education
  • Research
  • Intercontinental Affairs

Essentially, PEGASUS aims to offer itself as the European portal for higher education services in aerospace.
